Unsurprisingly, Michigan's governor, Rick Snyder, comes out for Mitt Romney, emphasizing his native-son roots in an op-ed for the Detroit News.
Let's start with one important fact. Our country has never elected a president born and raised in Michigan. Mitt Romney was born in Detroit. His father served with distinction as governor. Before that, he was president of American Motors. Mitt grew up with the prospects of the auto industry and of Michigan discussed around the dinner table.
He has deep ties to our state. Mitt understands the challenges confronting Michigan as few Americans do.
He then gets a bit more specific and writes about Romney's experience and record, and finally finishes by calling Mitt "this favorite son of our great state," clearly dissing Jack Kevorkian, who was born in Pontiac.
